kcupwindgauge1_2Thanks to the hard work of the Orange Recycling Committee, the town of Orange has become a great recycling community.

When the SmartLiving Center was in town, the ORC had an outlet to show residents different ways to recycle everyday materials and share information on the importance of recycling on the environment.

One of the most wasteful items on the market are the little plastic K-Cups for single serve brewing machines.

Let’s face it, most people will just take them and toss them in the garbage.

Do you know how long it will take for them to decompose in a landfill? Neither do I.

So do the earth a favor and gather the kids over April vacation and try these fun recycling activities that I found on the Mother Nature Network website.
